|1283. Lydia Rice
(33) was born on Jun 4 1668 in Sudbury, MA.
(5) She died on Apr 6 1756.
There is a note in the Genealogical dictionary that Mercy married Elnathan Allen and Lydia married Samuel Wheelock. I am not sure if it is THIS Samuel Wheelock, and the only way to confirm would be to make sure that Lydia, sister of Mercy, daughter of Henry, married Samuel and had Elizabeth in the appropriate year.
True to her heritage, Lydia had 9 children.
The LDS Ancestral File indicates that Lydia marries Samuel Wheelock in 1692 Children were:
641 i. Elizabeth Wheelock.
Martha - married Ephriam Pratt who lived to be 116 as documentd in Dwights Travels page 358.
